my grandmother's hands are wrinkled and wise
experience can be traced along every line
and strength can be seen in her hands lying still
now clasped for eternity, warding off further ill

my grandmother's hands so translucent and thin
i gently brush up against her cold skin
trying to grasp and hold on to something akin
to her beautiful presence once held within

my grandmother's hands have held both life and death
and now that she has taken her last breath
i can only imagine the peace she can feel--
her mortal pain has forever been healed.
